We brought our family of 4 to this remote corner of Hong Kong for a weekend getaway. For overseas travellers who don't know Hong Kong as well. Getting there requires a bit of planning. You can either (1) take ferry from Central to Mui Wo, then taxi or bus to Tai O, and either walk for 15 minutes or catch... More

Tai O Heritage Hotel was one of the highlights on our trip. We had visited the big buddha during the day so we got a #11 bus from the bus station next to the gondola terminal which took us to Tai town centre for about HK$11 on our octopus card. I would recommend walking to one of the boat services... More

We stayed for one night in May in one of the rooms on the ground floor. The hotel location is remote and requires a 15 min. walk from the local bus terminus/ferry pier, through the local town. The room furnishings are cozy though a bit worn. The bathroom is a standard disabled-toilet set up (with tiny sink and no bathroom... More

This is a unique hotel, in a unique location - but there are draw-backs. First the positives; the 2km walk from the drop-off point to the hotel through Tai O village is one of the highlights of the trip, and is an experience in itself. It is not a picture-postcard charming village in the way that old Tuscan villages are... More

I like the concept of the hotel. It is a heritage hotel. They transformed a police station into a nice quiet fancy hotel. The building was beautiful! With great view of the water and mountain. We hiked from Discovery Bay to Mui Woo, then took 40 mins bus to Tai O. Walk another 20 mins to the hotel. You certainly... More

We have just stayed at Tai O Heritage Hotel celebrating our anniversary. The hotel is very unique in Hong Kong. It feels like you are so far away from the crazy pace of the city. Here is a bit more detail: Getting there - you can either take the ferry from central to Mui Wo then bus or MTR to... More

This is the first time I have posted a review for a hotel I have not actually slept in ! Tai O is a very special island just off the larger island of Lantau - easily accessible from downtown HK by MRT+bus, MRT+cablecar+bus or ferry+bus. Most tourists come here (as I did) as part of a day trip to Lantau... More

Amazing find if you are looking for a relax weekend getaway. This place is a well preserved, tastefully renovated, former police station turned hotel, nestled on a hill, access only by foot, bicycle or boat, in a little fishing village on the far tip of Lantau island. When you are here, you would not even know you are in Hong... More

A beautifully restored colonial building plays host to a lovely boutique hotel in one of HKs most report and interesting villages. Highly recommended as a weekend getaway or for HK visitors looking for something different. We travelled via the cable car to Ngong Ping and took a cab to Tai O which made the journey special. The hotel is a... More

It was a surprise trip for the whole family celebrating our wedding anniversary. The team at the hotel went out of their way to make us feel special. The place has been able to mix heritage and modern comfort wonderfully. The location is stunning and the walk there just refreshing from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. I wish... More
